Many analysts are able to force Excel into doing the things they need. But once the data gets big enough, their VLOOKUPs and pivot tables break Excel, or force them to wait minutes to get data that should only take seconds. Learning how to utilize SQL can be daunting. Attendees will get hands-on experience in learning how to import their data, analyze it in ways that Excel makes painful and get back useable results.
